Hope you are all doing well out there, this week was another filled one, currently enjoying a full week off work to take some time to destress and just focus on other stuff again
Last Saturday a colleague of mine Johann William Loffler and myself dove into our first podcast recording, it was super interesting to see what goes into making a podcast and the stuff behind the scene afterwards like editing, balancing the volume, etc... It was also interesting from a setup perspective, because I forgot to record my audio on separate tracks, but this is a big experiment and there is a while ton of new stuff to learn, especially because I'm still doing all the editing myself.
Growth of the community
Something I really haven't discussed in a while is the growth of our little community, I'm really happy with the people that are on the discord and how they have enabled me to be a little more free and allowing me to do more experimental stuff, the blog grew into the website which currently had big plans and a lot of moving parts, so I'm really excited to keep pushing the way Environment Artists get their information, I'm just really excited to keep pushing my knowledge, try out new stuff like doing podcasts etc as well, it's just so fun to try all these different approaches.
We recently pushed out our first newsletter, which took a bit to setup, but I finally got it to work (at least good enough for a first iteration!) So if you are interested in staying up to date you can find this list in the footer on any blog page or on "our mission" page.
I recently did an article for EXP-Points that got released this week, it's all about the work that goes into blog, how it started, how it evolved, my favourite topics and more... So make sure to check it out over onhttps://www.exp-points.com/timothy-dries-the-environment-artists-blog-ue4
